Tourist's Pocket Map of Michigan, 1839 Puzzle

Regular price $20.00

This 1839 "Tourist's Pocket Map of Michigan" once exhibited more than internal improvements, roads and distances. First published by S. Augustus Mitchell in 1834, the map went through a variety of changes from its original publication date to 1846. It was called a "Tourist's Pocket Map" as a result of its literal function. It could be folded into a small 12x7.5-inch booklet that could fit into any tourist's pocket; the original is 18x22 inches.

Features a historical image from the collections at the Archives of Michigan. This 500-piece jigsaw puzzle is printed, pressed, and assembled in Lansing, Michigan. Approximate dimensions are 17" x 24"
